Alcohol-Free Drinks at Epcot's Food and Wine Festival

Alcohol-Free Drinks at Epcot's Food and Wine Festival

No wine at Food & Wine sounds like half the fun is absent…. but that’s just not the case. I spent a day on assignment for Inside the Magic to see what the 2018 Epcot Food & Wine Festival had to offer for those of us that do not imbibe.

This lead me not so much around the world, but mostly around Future World, trying out the specialty slushies and iced drinks offered by the pavillions set up for Food & Wine. I saw how coffee was made, paired my kombucha with a tasty lil burger, and saw some acrobats spinning while I sipped a bubble tea. Food and Wine is about so much more than the wine, but I guess Food, Entertainment and Wine was too long of a name (and F.E.W. is not exactly a good marketing tactic).

There ended up being a lot of drinks that were alcohol-free, but some were just too syrupy sweet. Find out which ones are worth your Disney Dining Snack credits in my post at InsidetheMagic.net.
